Hi guys, I made this post to create a big list of aphorisms and proverbs from all over the world.
I start with this:

Life is not about waiting for the Storm to Pass,
it's about learning to Dance in the Rain.

Some swedish sayings translated into english (as well I could):

Better to hear your string break than to never pull your bow at all.

One bird in your hand is better than ten in the forest.

Many little streams forms a river.

There's no cow on the ice as long as you have the butt on solid ground.

And my favorite: Lagom är bäst meaning: not too much and not too little / the right amount is best

La libertà è come l'aria: ti accorgi quanto è importante solo quando manca.

Freedom is like air: you realize how important it is only when you don't have it.

No wait. I totally forgot my second favorite saying: there's no bad weather, just bad clothes.
It's better in Swedish though as it happens to rhyme.

Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of life and I cant slow down
Only got a gallon in the gas tank
But im almost at the finishline so I cant stop now.

I dont really know where im headed
Just enjoying the ride
